    Question MIP CVD Assembly

    Well, after my first 2 runs of changing to lipo I destroyed 2 sets of plastic CVDs. Good thing I was anticipating this and asked for MIP CVDs for Christmas!

    I assembled them last night using red loctite after cleaning all the pieces. I am sure I should know the answer to the following question, what do you use for lube on the splines? The directions say to use moly, what is that?

    Thanks for all your help guys!!

    Congratulations on taking your time to assemble the MIPS correctly. Moly is bearing grease used on automobiles. I use a brand from auto zone. I use a very small amount as too much will attract dirt, dust... Etc. Just a small amount on all moving parts and the splines will do you. Some people on here go totally dry, but I like a little bit of lube. Hope this helps you out, and good luck with your MIPS.

    When I used black/moly grease, I got too much sand sticking in the grooves. I've switched to Liquid Wrench Dry Spray Lube from Lowes. Doesn't attract near the amound of sand particles getting into the splines.
